How is the tax country determined in a Down Payment Request which was created via a Sales Order.
For the Countries: Canada, Mexico and India
The Tax Country is determined from the location of the Account and Ship-To party on header level due to the Simplified Tax Code determination. (You can find further explanantion in the document Simplified Tax Code in ByD Help Center).
For all the other Countries:
The Tax Country is determined from the location of the Seller.
OBSERVATION: When creating a Sales Order the Tax Country is determined from the location of the Seller in all countries. System works this way because it's possible to have multiple items in a Sales Order with different Tax Codes, but the same cannot be mapped to Down Payment documents since Down Payment does not have item level details. This document can have only one Tax Code on the header level.
So in the Down Payment, depending on the country, system selects the standard Tax Codes which can be overwritten at anytime.
In an example:
If the Account or Ship-To party on header level in a Sales Order is located in Canada and the Seller is US, the Tax Country in the Down Payment will be determined as Canada. However, if the Account or Ship-To party on header level in a Sales Order is located in the France and the Seller is located in US , the Tax Country in the Down Payment will be determined as US.
